Give your committee a name. Tie the name to something local in order to give it a local flavor.Then, amongst yourselves, decide who will represent your group as its leader or spokesman. This person will serve as the leader for your group and will be expected to act on its behalf whenneeded. He or she should be knowledgeable in the subject material on Agenda 21 and sustainabledevelopment. He or she does not need to be an experienced organizer, although such experiencedoes help; this person will learn and develop such skills through time and experience, butknowledge on the origins of Agenda 21 and issues at hand will be key.When recruiting a new person to your committee give them a job or position, make sure theyhave a friend on the committee and educate them more on both the problems and solutions toAgenda 21. Your committee should consist of no more than 15-20 individuals.
Call small meeting of leaders
Now that your email has been sent and committee formed, setup a meeting of community leadersor opinion molders – those that have influence over others in the community. Examples of opinion molders may include: community board supervisor, the president of your local PTA, a police officer or sheriff, town milkman, local high school football coach, small business owners, professionals, pastors or other members of the local clergy, leaders of the local Boy Scouts,Eagle Scouts, Girl Scouts, or other service organizations.These individuals are respected people in your community, and their support can prove valuablein garnering credibility in your efforts to educate others and stop the implementation of Agenda21 or sustainable development in your community.Your objective in calling for this meeting is to convince them of the threat posed by ICLEI andsustainable development measures and their affiliation with the United Nations (i.e. Agenda 21).Once they are convinced they can join and assist in your efforts to effectively organize againstthe implementation of such measures. Once you have assembled a handful of these individuals,you will want to do the following:
Develop a list of steps toward withdrawing from ICLEI
Engage leaders in approving/altering those steps
Set up larger meetings to encourage involvement
Formulate strategy for the larger numbers
When you hold your meetings to foster involvement, you will want to develop a strategy for them to utilize to combat and stop sustainable development and ICLEI. Make a presentation or PowerPoint demonstration highlighting the problem of Agenda 21 or sustainable development asit pertains to your local area. Use the JBS Agenda 21 DVD for a general overview of the subject.Bring, show or give any materials that you can spare on what Agenda 21 and sustainabledevelopment entails. Your strategy should also include a list of steps toward withdrawing fromICLEI and a means by which to carry it out. As part of your strategy, you will want to develop alist of activities, such as creating a local committee and producing relevant literature/ materials.
